“Georgiou engaged Executive Safety Services (ESS) to complete a safety review from a ‘Due Diligence for Officers’ perspective, of Georgiou safety systems and how they are applied in practice from Board & Executive level through to the project frontline, the process included the following;
- Desktop review of Company Risk Registers, Governance Regime for Health and Safety Reporting, Action and Close Out Reporting through to the Board, consultation records with workforce including various site visits.
- Interviews with Board members, CEO, General Managers, Construction Managers, Project Managers, Engineers and Supervisors with a number of site-based interactions.
- Worked with personnel in safety critical roles to gauge their understanding and knowledge of Georgiou reporting, action and close out requirements, including accountability and responsibility for safety in their role.
Dean proceeded to analyse the observations and data to identify strengths, opportunities for improvement and communicate any potential issues in a report providing a number of recommendations to implement in Georgiou’s Safety Management System and Practices. This was achieved in a timely, brutally honest manner which allowed Georgiou to readily identify areas which are operating well, areas to improve and implement an action plan.
I have known Dean Cipolla for 13 years from when I commenced at John Holland in November 2007. I rate Dean Cipolla as one of the pre-eminent safety professionals in the construction industry and hence engaged Dean to thoroughly review the Georgiou safety systems from Board level to workplaces in early 2020. I have no hesitation in recommending ESS for safety advice, audit, implementation and/or review of safety systems for any business. Their approach is practical, insightful, engaging and very honest in what you need to do and where you need to improve” – Rob Monaci – CEO Georgiou Group in 2020.
